Make It Mondays - Masque Mode

This past week's Make It Monday's theme was Masks and I knew I wanted to make an ATC using one of the "Mode" faux postage stamps from Ten Two Studios with these big haired, big hatted 18th century fashion models. But getting a mask on her was not as easy as I had planned.

I originally wanted to cut out a little paper mask, but after the several tries, the best of which made her look like she went to the same optometrist as Geordi LaForge, I decided I would have to draw her mask and hand (hence the goofy fingers :o).

I still had my dictionaries lying around from last month's By Definition trade with Milwaukee ATC, so I found definitions of "masque" and "masquerade" to glue on the background, which is one of the many paint chip ATC backs I cut from all the paint samples I found while cleaning out my collage stash.

Thanks for the kind comments - it's not my usual theme, and I was a bit frustrated about things not going as planned ;o)
